Today was a really productive day. The students at Canyon Springs presented their topics as practice for the “Advocacy in Action” day. I am continually humbled by the amount of work they've accomplished in such a short time period. The students were fairly confident in their presentations and had good background knowledge of their subject. Some of the groups were presenting better than most college-level presentations I've seen! They made good eye-contact, engaged the audience, spoke clearly and most importantly conveyed their passion about these health issues. We were able to provide supportive feedback and small changes of improvement.
And the best news of all: The Moreno Valley City Council's Emerging Leaders Council has granted our request for time to present at their next meeting in two weeks! How cool is that?! The students were so excited, and pretty nervous, when I told them the good news.
